|Grand Gardens Photography Tour day trip set for June 2|
This trip is called the Grand Gardens Photography Tour Day Trip and while participants are invited to bring their cameras, they're welcome to come along without them as well. The tour's first stop will be the Unity Village Rose Garden in Lee's Summit where visitors can see 800 award-winning rose bushes. After buffet-style lunch at the Unity Inn, the group will visit the Kauffman Memorial Garden near the Country Club Plaza with its colorful annuals, perennial beds, and playful fountains. The final garden to be toured is the Laura Conyers Smith Rose Garden in Kansas City's Loose Park, which features 3,000 roses and 150 varieties. Along the way, photographer Marilyn Lyons will show participants how to get that "million dollar shot" and how to use specific features on their cameras such as taking closeups and capturing wide outdoor vistas.
